This was such a depressing place to visit. I can't imagine seeing much worse conditions in a major zoo. The small cages look like they belong from 100 years ago, especially the big cat enclosures. They are tiny concrete rings with no room for the cats to really move and it really just made us sad. There were absolutely no keepers around when we were there and everywhere people were showering animals with food, literally throwing over the do not feed signs. It is a big place that could probably be developed into a great zoo but it seems all about the numbers of visitors. Avoid if you don't want a spoiled day or image of Guangzhou.
